Adam Weinberg ’87 will step into the role of leader of Denison University next July, becoming the Ohio school’s 20th president. He is currently president and CEO of World Learning, an international nonprofit that provides exchange and development programs in more than 60 countries.
“The board’s selection of Adam initiates a new era for Denison,” said Thomas E. Hoaglin, board chair and member of the Class of 1971. “Adam brings to the president’s role a strong vision and deep global experience, which is vital to ensuring that Denison continues to develop students who think independently and have the problem-solving skills to bring coherence to a complex world.”
Prior to World Learning, Weinberg was vice president and dean of the college at Colgate University, where he served on the faculty for more than a decade. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Weinberg serves on the boards of InterAction and The Alliance for International Education and Cultural Exchange, and is the past chair of Vermont Campus Compact. His published work includes two books, Urban Recycling and the Search for Sustainable Development and Local Environmental Struggles, as well as numerous articles.
Weinberg graduated from Bowdoin magna cum laude and did work at Cambridge University before earning his master’s degree and doctorate from Northwestern University in sociology.
